Today is Election Day
Polls open 7 a.m.-7 p.m.
Tuesday, Nov. 5, is Election Day — the first statewide election where a photo ID will be required to vote in person.
On the local ballots are nine amendments to the Texas Constitution, placed in random order by Texas Secretary of State John Steen.
Most Parker County residents will vote solely on the amendments, but others will also vote on additions to Emergency Service District No. 3 and ESD No. 7, as well as on bond elections in the Azle and Granbury school districts.
Polls will be open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday.
Texas now requires voters to show photo ID at the polls. IDs that can be accepted include: one of four Texas Department of Public Safety-issued photo IDs (driver’s license, personal ID card, concealed handgun license or election identification certificate) or one of three United States government issued photo IDs (passport, military ID card, U.S. citizenship or naturalization certificate).
The photo ID must be current or expired no more than 60 days. Other photo IDs, including student IDs and employment IDs, cannot be accepted at the polls.
ESD No. 3 annexation
In East Parker County residents within the boundaries of ESD No. 3 as well as residents living in a petitioned area in and around Annetta North will vote on whether to add the petitioned area to the ESD, a taxing entity. The proposed annexation area includes land inside the city limits of Annetta North — on the east and west ends — and land within the ETJs of both Annetta North and Weatherford.
A second related proposition would commit the Annetta North territory to assuming a proportionate share of ESD No. 3’s outstanding debts and taxes should the first proposition succeed.
ESD No. 7
Residents in the Cool and Garner areas of the county and the Millsap and Greenwood areas will have a change to weigh in on the annexation of the Cool-Garner fire district by ESD No. 7, a taxing fire and emergency services district currently headquartered in Greenwood and including the Millsap area.
If voters in both areas approve the annexation, property in the Cool and Garner areas can be taxed up to 10 cents per $100 valuation under state law and the ESD is expected to help fund the efforts of Cool-Garner VFD.
A group associated with the volunteer department collected more than 150 signatures earlier this year to place the issue on the ballot as firefighters expressed a need to obtain reliable funding to meet the needs required to respond to a growing number of emergency calls.
The nonpartisan League of Women Voters — Texas Education Fund Voters Guide for the Constitutional Amendment Election — is available online at www.lwvtexas.org and www.VOTE411.org and distributed in print by local Leagues and through many libraries.
Information on the nine proposed constitutional amendments may also be found on the site.
